Based on the play by Tim Whitnall and starring Alex MacQueen and Philip Campbell, The Hide tells the story of a reclusive bird watcher who spends his time on desolate marshes. His peace is disrupted by the arrival of a stranger whose dishevelled appearance initially causes him some alarm. Surprisingly, the pair strike up a friendship, discovering that they have more in common than they first thought. However a shocking police announcement on the radio throws the two friends into a deadly fight for survival in this tense thriller.
The Hide was erected on the marshy shores just below theHarty Ferry Inn. Other footage was shot a little further along at the Elmley Marshes on the Isle of Sheppey. Exposed to the elements, the bleak and atmospheric coastal marshland was the perfect backdrop for this tense thriller.
